21st century assessment

Are today’s standardized tests assessing students for the wrong skills? A recent essay in Education Week titled Assessment in the Age of Innovation and written by several folks associated with the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, says they are.

Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach, a member of the Teacher Leaders Network and a popular edu-blogger about School 2.0 (and beyond), summarizes the essay and mashes it up with other information she’s gathered over the past month in this very interesting entry at her 21st Century Collaborative blog.
